Manta Ray Night Dive
Wednesday, April 22, 2020

 "A night to remember on the world famous Manta Night Snorkel. Take a boat ride in the late afternoon along the Kona coast to the manta viewing site. Slip into the water with your snorkel guide and float above majestic manta rays as they somersault, glide, and pivot in the light below. Manta rays are filter feeders and feed on plankton attracted to light. They have very large mouths, but no sharp teeth. Manta rays do not have tail stingers. This is a thrilling experience for those who seek adventure!"

Arriving on the Island:

Transportation to the hotel is not included in cost. Fly into Kona International Airport (KOA), From LAX there is a direct flight that arrives late morning on Delta, Hawaiian Airlines... Many people arrive the morning of the retreat, which starts at 3:00pm with Cyndi's talk about dolphins, what to expect while swimming with them, safety tips, and respecting the animals. Southwest just started to fly to Hawaii.

A car is not needed during the retreat unless you want one. The hotel is 9 miles away, about a 16 minute taxi or uber drive, form the airport. We will walk to Jack's Diving locker to pick up a bus to take us to the boat. Jack's is just under 1/2 mile away. The hotel has a restaurant and there are tons of restaurants half of a mile away or closer. 

All transportation to the resort is not included in the cost of the retreat.

Preparing For your trip and swimming tips:

  •  The boat will be available to get on and off as you please and can rest on the boat if needed.
  •    If you are not a super strong swimmer or have health issues that may prevent you from swimming around easily, you may decide to use a fun noodles to float on. Allow the dolphins to come to you. Last time I went, the dolphins always went to those who floated near the boat, while the rest of us swam to them. So either way you will be able to swim with them. They are smart animals and know what you need.
  • On the first day we will stop in a bay to test our snorkel gear and see how well you swim. This will allow you to get comfortable in the water before we call in the dolphins. A group pod leader, either Cyndi or one of the assigned dolphin water safety experts from Jack’s, will lead your group of about 5 people in the water.
  • The dolphins love to play in the water. They swim around us/you. Can mimic your moves or you can mimic them. They are very playful.
Healing aspects of the dolphin

"Perhaps the only species that compares well with Homo Sapiens in intelligence, dolphins possess an innate gentleness and a mysterious power to trigger the healing process in humans. “What makes dolphins exceptional in therapeutical fields,” explains Rene, “is the use of their sonar with which they echolocate their prey. There is evidence that dolphins trigger the healing process in humans by boosting the production of T-cells and endorphins. After patient and dolphin interactions, scientists have measured a far greater harmony between the left and right sides of the brain.” He informs that dolphins produce an intense amount of echolocation energy, which resonates in the bones, such as the skull and the sternum, and then travels up the spine.

“Many therapists believe,” says Amanda Green, a marine biologist, “that a dolphin’s sonar causes a phenomenon called cavitation inside the soft body tissue of the human body. It precipitates a ripping apart of the molecules.” So, if sonar does that with cellular membranes, it could completely change the biomolecular structure. She adds, “many hospitals already use a lithotripsy machine that uses low frequency sound waves to break up kidney stones and gall stones. The physics of that machine are not different from a dolphin’s sonar.”

When you encounter a wild dolphin in open waters, something breaks open the conditioned seals of your heart. “Dolphins make you feel accepted as you are, with unconditional love,” explains Amanda. This, she feels, leads to a profound inner peace that reaches out to embrace the universe. In scientific terms, this is biophillia, the transformative power that links you to nature, and, going by recent research, dolphins could be the most powerful carriers of this emotion." source-

How Dolphins Heal:

"Although no one really knows how and to what degree dolphins heal, a number of both scientific and intuitive speculations have been put forth.

Sound and Vibration: Scientists believe that the dolphin’s ultrasound emissions have considerable healing potential from an energy and informational perspective. Clinically, ultrasound has been used to promote healing, for diagnostic imaging, and to destroy cataracts and kidney and gallstones. Throughout history, sound - such as music, drumming and chanting - has been used to promote health. Physiologically, we now know that these sounds can influence heart rate, breathing, muscle contractions, memory, and immune function. In terms of energy, the dolphin’s ultrasound blast is four times stronger than therapeutically used in hospitals.

Furthermore, this blast is delivered through water, which is 60 times more efficient than air for sound transference, to a body that is three-quarters fluid. It is believed that ultrasound resonance within the cerebrospinal fluid is especially important due to the fluid’s key influence on the brain and spinal cord.

Brain Waves: Dr. David Cole of the Aquathought Foundation has shown that human brain waves shift from high-frequency beta to low-frequency theta waves after a dolphin encounter. Beta waves are associated with increased concentration, alertness, and enhanced memory function. In contrast, theta waves are associated with enhanced creativity, sensory integration, and altered states of consciousness. For the sake of reference, people exhibit theta waves in the fleeting moments when they drift from consciousness into sleep.

Scientists believe that a brain-wave shift of this nature strengthens the human immune system. Furthermore, after a dolphin encounter, research has shown a synchronization of brain-wave activity between the logical, analytical left brain and the intuitive, imaginative right brain. These brain-wave alterations may explain why people view swimming with the dolphins as a transcendental experience.

Dr. Cole speculates that these brain-wave alterations are facilitated by sonar-induced cavitation. Basically, the dolphin’s intense sound waves create alternating regions of compression and expansion that form small bubbles in the cell membrane.  In turn, these bubbles facilitate the transport of key neurological molecules from outside to inside neurons.

Human Energy Fields: Scientists also speculate that the dolphins’ therapeutic energy is mediated through human energy fields. According to human energy field theory (see Infinite Mind, Dr.. Valerie Hunt, Malibu Publishing Co, 1996), disease has its origins in the energy field at an atomic level, which then progressively manifests in the molecular, cellular and body-system levels. Conversely, if the energy field is fixed, healing will progress to the physical body. The human energy field responds to stimulus, such as sound, even when the person experiences no conscious awareness of the stimulus and before changes are noted in physiological parameters such as brain waves, blood pressure, etc.  Because it is theorized that the effects of spinal cord injury are stored in these energy fields, mending the human energy field first will promote the body’s healing." source -
